F016 - Pediatric Dermatology for the Adult Dermatologist
Friday, March 1; 1:00 PM - 3:00 PM
Following this course, the attendee should be able to:
- Recognize the distinct presentation of common dermatoses in children and how these presentations differ from their adult counterparts.
- Identify extracutaneous signs that should prompt concern for primary immunodeficiency when a child presents with a psoriasiform dermatitis.
- Recognize primary cutaneous lymphoma in children and how to manage the cutaneous side effects of immunosuppression in this population.
This session aims to assist the general dermatologist in managing skin conditions in children. It will emphasize recognizing the distinct presentation of common dermatoses in the pediatric population, as well as distinguishing these conditions from less common diagnoses in children. Appropriate treatment options in this age group will also be discussed. Finally, participants will be able to identify when a cutaneous eruption is suggestive of a systemic condition requiring multi-disciplinary care, prompting additional referral to other pediatric subspecialties.
